If I am a lurker and had to sign up in order to get to the greatest HITS area, because it was a members only area. That would make me curious and would make me want to join and see what it was all about. You know the old saying is for women. Don't show all the goods leave something to the mans imagination. Let them be curious and it will make them sign up. Once they see what it is about some will post and some will not. But why keep it open for all to see. I say make it members only! I voted Yes! Curiosity is what killed the cat! Personally I found that the more time I spend reading posts on the forum I earn less. I have been making 30.00++++ every day since I don't get on here as much as I used to. I find more and more work without being on the forums. The forums take away from my productivity I learned. My opinion.
